Okay, maybe that's a stretch, but for the few times they played in Iowa, the shows were quite good...please consider the following shows that were played:

03-20-1971 http://archive.org/details/gd71-03-20.sbd.barbella.5582.sbeok.shnf. Rare show

02-24-1973 http://archive.org/details/gd73-02-24.pset1-sbd.sly.16051.sbeok.shnf. http://archive.org/details/gd73-02-24.sbd.elliot.11929.sbeok.shnf 2 pieces from the show

05-13-1973 http://archive.org/details/gd1973-05-13.sbd.smith-lee.GEMS.97558.flac16. fantastic 73 show, awesome He's Gone Truckin jam

06-16-1974. Road Trips release no audience source to post, classic 74 wall of sound show, nice Eyes>Big River

02-05-1978 http://archive.org/details/gd78-02-05.aud.set2.warner.19466.sbeok.shnf.

One of the best 78 shows, this one is a Dicks Picks...outstanding post drums sequence, including a peaking Other One with lovely transition into Wharf Rat...set opener Scarlet Fire is nice, however Fire is a bit disjointed but has some very fine moments throughout

12-07-1981. http://archive.org/details/gd81-12-07.set2-sbd.miller.12970.sbeok.shnf. love December 81 nice
Ittleocket of deadness

08-10-1982 http://archive.org/details/gd1982-08-10.sbd.miller.102577.flac16
One of the better 82 shows

07-04-1984. http://archive.org/details/gd1984-07-04.sbd.miller.93858.sbeok.flac16. strong 4th of July show, Help Slip Frank, nice He's Gone

Shoeless Joe Jackson: Is this heaven?

Ray Kinsella: No, it's Iowa.

Is it just me, or do most of these links not work?

All great shows though.

NY & SF are obviously the top 2. Lots of great shows in Boston and Philly too.

Just delete the unnecessary period at the tail end of the links provided and they'll work just fine. Liking the 78 aud very much right now...

I lived in Iowa City, Iowa for years. Nicknamed by some the People's Republic of Iowa City because of the number of liberals and others much further to the left. There was a large contingent of Iowa City Deadheads. The band used to tour quite a bit in the midwest until they started concentrating more on longer runs in the bigger cities. I saw the 78, 81, 82 and 84 shows that you mention. 84 was the last show in the state. After that we got our fixes at Alpine Valley and the Twin Cities.
